if you are looking for an inexpensive scope look to the super sniper. remember these are 30 mil tube, i have 1 and it holds its zero very well. i just order the new bushnell 5x15x40 tactical new they are 329.oo. i have heard very good things about these.
I am interested in the Bushnell 5x15x40 tactical. I really like the 5x15 power range which is a good balance between low and high power! I wouldn't mind having 50mm instead of 40mm, but that depends on how good the scope works with the 40mm. Do you like your new Bushnell?

Please let us know how the 5X15 Bush. does!!
Back to the 270, I had great results with the 140Acc. this past fall, in all cases the bullet performed, all with a .486BC & sub 1/2"(3-shot) in a M700ADL, stock of all things!!
You will not make peace with the Blue Coats, you are free to go.
Well I'll have to throw in a plus on the Bushnell 3200 10x42 scope, I've had one on a 308 for heck 4 or 5 years now and I just have not been able to tear it up yet! about to order the 5x15 for a 243. I would love to own one of the Night Force scopes but hey I'm financially embarrased so I get the best I can afford! you rifle seems to be shooting well anough to get you some good practice but with the skinny barrel be sure and let it cool down after a few shots! I had a 6.5x55 the would shoot like a house a fire but that 3rd shot would just hit an odd spot on the target and the barrel would be HOT! Take your time and practice! you don't need a $3000 custom to practice LR, just get out there and practice and that way your figure out what you like and don't like for when you get to the point of building that custom LR rig. Give you an idea I started out wanting to build a 280AI and after looking and soul searching about what I wanted it too do and asking questions on this board I've decided on a 338 Edge, either way practice will be the best thing you can do right now and work on a good load your rifle will shoot well and go practice, and have FUN! Later,
I just bought the 5-15x40 Tactical. I've only been to the range with it once, but I am pretty impressed. The clicks are very solid, loud and accurate. I also love the eye relief- 4.3". The glass is very good for the price. I'm very happy with it. I got it from a dealer on ebay for $282.
